Judging from your aftermarket parts you want, the 300C is your best bet. It's known to have a great 'personality' with bling on it. I'm just a car fan, not really Chrysler biased.

Power
GTO: 6L
300C: 5.7L

Warranty
About the same

Crash Ratings
GTO: Not tested
300C: Driver...excellent. Passanger...excellent. Rollover...good. Side Impact...good

Exterior Color Choices
GTO: 7
300C: 9

Wheels

GTO: alloy
300C: Chrome alloy

Chrome Grille
GTO: Na
300C: Standard

Seating
GTO: 4
300C: 5

Those are some of the options. Edmunds.com, the place where I compared them, showed the 300C beyond favorable compared to the GTO...

If you want satellite radio I believe it is not available as an option on the GTO.

I don't know if you already got the car. But with those mods you have in mind, you definately want a 300C...

The 300C is known for the mods that you've posted, but it just comes down to opinion. If you're willing to spend money on mods and stuff, I think 7 grand more for the SRT-8 might be worth it.
